STRICTLY Come Dancing alum HRVY shared a childhood throwback photo where he looked completely unrecognisable.

Pop star HRVY, 22, became a household name after his star turn on last year's Strictly series.

He posted an adorable throwback pic to his Instagram stories, showing him in his school uniform.

In the black and white photo HRVY is giving his best 'Blue Steel' pose with his hand under his chin and very cooly look to the camera.

HRVY started out as a guest presenter on BBC children's entertainment show Friday Download and has been hosting the show full-time since 2015.

But he became a big hit with the British public during his Strictly stint where he finished runner-up alongside professional dancer Janette Manrara.

The pop star was linked at the time with his Strictly co-star Maisie Smith, but they have since split.

Most recently, HRVY was said to be close with teen tennis sensation, Emma Raducanu.

The former Strictly star, whose real name is Harvey Leigh Cantwell, says the pair are “good friends”, have spoken this week and plan to meet soon on the tennis courts.

He said: “I’ve spoken to her since she won. What an absolute star. She’s amazing.

“We chat all the time. We’re close. We’re good friends.

Speaking to promote his new single Runaway With It at London’s Rosewood hotel last week, Hrvy said he hoped Emma would give him a private lesson.

He added: “I’m going to play tennis with her soon. I’m sure she can probably teach me a thing or two.

“It makes me sound really bouji but my family used to have a tennis court, so I actually grew up with the sport.”

Hrvy will be on hand to help Emma deal with her newfound fame, and said: “I think people can be harder on young women and judge them.

“Men can get away with a lot more and that shouldn’t be the case. Women seem to get it a lot harder on social media. I’ve got a lot of female friends and I’m close to my mum.”

He first contacted Emma on social media. At the time, he was linked romantically to EastEnders actress Maisie Smith.

Of their friendship, he said: “Maisie is so cool. We got on so well, as we were the youngest ones on the show.

“We really bonded on that level and we would talk all the time. The audience wasn’t as nice to Maisie as they should have been. People were scared of how beautiful, young and talented she was, as they saw her on TV every week.”
